Here’s what former interns are saying about their experience at the Nashville Wine Auction:

Natalie Tips

Intern, Spring 2015

Interning with the Nashville Wine Auction has been a valuable (and fun!) learning experience. From the staff, to the events, nothing falls short of amazing. I have enjoyed being able to work on a variety of projects, including private dinners and the Pairings event while learning so much about how to run a successful non-profit for a great cause.

Adam Schechtman

Intern, Fall 2015

Working at the Nashville Wine Auction was an excitingly different experience throughout my four months here. I not only learned a great deal of information about the marketing and event planning industries, but also received my first serious exposure to the complex world of wine. I gained experience that can be used in the classroom, in the workplace, and at any social event.

Julie Loiben

Intern, Fall 2015

As an intern, I was given a lot of independence and took ownership of several large projects. The board of directors notebook I created was used at this year’s retreat, and I was in charge of the gift bags that we distributed at Champagne and Chardonnay. My work on Pairings will be used by Nashville Wine Auction staff to keep track of important vintner information and help create the auction catalog. I know that my projects had a direct impact on helping the organization achieve its goals.
